Greek-American VFW Post Honors Fallen Heroes on Memorial Day

LANSDOWNE, PA – The only Greek-American Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) post in the United States paid tribute to fallen heroes on Memorial Day for the 76th year in a row.

One of the longest running events in the Greek-American community of Philadelphia continued at the St. Demetrios area of Fernwood Cemetery in Lansdowne on May 30. Veterans of the VFW post, family, friends, clergy, and patriots gathered to honor those who dedicated their lives to serving our country and made the ultimate sacrifice.
